African-American Advisory Board

African-American Alumni Advisory Board


To ensure the necessary inclusion of African-Americans in all sectors of the Georgetown University community; foster communication and networking among African-American students, alumni, faculty and staff; and act as a key advisor to the university on policies and procedures that will positively impact the African-American experience at Georgetown.


Pursuing the core objectives established at its founding in June 2000, the AAAB works to:

  • Demonstrate a sustained commitment to the recruitment of and outreach efforts to African-Americans and other students of color in partnership with the Undergraduate Admissions Office and the Center for Multicultural Equity & Access (CMEA);
  • Provide administrative and financial support to campus events with the goal of securing funds for scholarships and bringing alumni of color back to the Hilltop;
  • Put into action the recommendations on how to recruit, retain and support a diverse faculty;
  • Develop leadership and mentoring opportunities for African-American alumni and support the ongoing alumni outreach efforts of the Office of Advancement.
  • Perpetuate self-sustaining fundraising efforts.
